Muddle the first four ingredients in a mixing glass. Add the whiskey and shake well with ice. Strain into a highball glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with the lemon, lime, and cherry.
This is adapted from the original 1888 edition of the Harry Johnson's Bartender's Manual. What interested me was the illustration that went along with the drink, showing fruit at the bottom of the glass as if it had been muddled.
